Thanks for following up, Chuck. It's reassuring to know that I'm not the 
only one seeing this problem.

I just called the station to let them know. The person I spoke to didn't 
seem to be aware that the station was broadcasting digitally at all, got 
a bit flustered, then transferred me to someone's voicemail. :) We'll 
see if I get a call back from the voicemail message.

If there's anyone else in the GTA seeing similar problems, please do 
contact the station. They won't bother fixing this if they don't think 
anyone cares about broadcast any more.
